  • Percentage of eligible employees fully utilizing plan design features such as company match, auto-escalation, target date maturity funds, and managed account products;
  • Participant action items needed to meet income replacement goals;
  • Segmentation of participant audiences according to their actual investment mix compared to what their mix would be in an automatic rebalancing plan; and
  • Quantifying the retirement income impact of moving a participant into an automatic rebalancing plan.
